Design / Construction Engineering and Inspection: FIGG
Sailboat Bridge over the Grand Lake O' the Cherokees was the first precast concrete segmental bridge in Oklahoma. The FIGG design resulted in a savings of $1 million when bid against a bulb tee alternate. In addition to the cost savings, ODOT realized greater aesthetic value, increased durability, and minimal maintenance requirements due to design features of the post-tensioned structure. The design includes the use of an integral wearing surface which far exceeded the standard for rideability in the state. The 3,044’ long twin bridges were completed more than two months ahead of schedule.
